Hedges first began trading in 1896 in Oxford’s famous Covered Market. A specialist butcher selling high quality meat, poultry and game, operating shoulder to shoulder with other butchers, fish mongers, florists, green grocers, bakers and more.

The way people shop has changed drastically over recent years and it wasn’t until 2018 that Hedges took the decision to move from their first home to a new premises in Botley to better serve the community.

Moving forward to 2019 and our high standards for select meats hasn’t changed since the first butcher in 1896. We continue to source our produce from local farmers that share our goals for a sustainable environment, animal welfare and best farming practices.

We like our customers to feel happy with their purchase, our dedicated team of highly skilled butchers are more than capable of answering your cookery and preparation questions to ensure our customers have the right ingredients and knowledge to successfully wow their guests, or just get their children to eat healthy foods!
